PIC Counties Coaches Club

The PIC Counties Coaches Club has been developed as an initiative to recognise coaches who are continually developing their coaching knowledge and also to those coaches who have been long time servants to their clubs, the Union and the game.  Special presentations are made at Rugby Smart, Secondary School and Small Black Courses.  These coaches who have proven their dedication gain access to extra resources and a PIC polo shirt.  (Photo caption from left: Barney Te Tai, Jeff Maka, Halaholo  Lataumaumi, Lance Stone, Craig Hill, Scott Penney, Cynthia Ta'ala).  If you would like to be assessed to see if you meet the criteria to join this group please contact Grant Henson 021 330 294
